AI / Deep Learning applications course/ mentoring program – hands-on experience with limited spaces

I am pleased to announce a new course on AI Applications

The course combines elements of teaching, coaching and community. For this reason, the batch sizes are small and selective. I will be working with a small/selective group of people to actively transfer their career to AI through education and my network towards specific outcomes/goals. This course involves hands-on experience (if you are interested in this)

Early bird discounts now for a limited time ..

In a nutshell

  • The course (spanning three months) covers concepts, theory and coding for AI (in Python ie. Tensorflow and Keras) and also deployment.
  • Career guidance and mentoring
  • As a part of the mentoring process, you outline your goals and we work toward them. The mentoring may extend beyond the course.

  • Please contact [email protected] for more details and Pricing. See testimonials below
  • covers AI for IoT and Enterprise
  • course is personalized and the quiz is by milestone
  • The course involves hands-on experience. This means, you participate in an existing project in sprints. Note that this is different from the project you will do as part of the course. The hands-on project involves and open source project where you will work in sprints. The hands-on project is optional and helps you with gaining real-life experience

The course is unique in 3 ways

a)  Personalized and small numbers(I actually talk to everyone!). There is no cost for personalization
b)  Projects are by interest and vertical domain. we use a common codebase and then create small groups by interest(ex insurance, bioinformatics etc)
c)  you have lifetime access to the content

Course outline

Through the course, every participant should be able to develop a reusable codebase / library for solving problems using Tensorflow and Keras. This library then enables you to reuse the code in your applications.
The course comprises three milestones

Concepts milestone

In the Concepts milestone, we take a use case approach. We cover AI, IoT, Machine Learning, Platforms, Applications. We also discuss an overall methodology of applying AI techniques to  Enterprise and IoT problems. ,;’

Development milestone
In the development phase, we first cover the basics of development in Python (Tensorflow and Keras) for machine learning applications
We then cover three models (MLP, CNN and LSTM)
We also cover the theory of MLP, CNN and LSTM
Finally, we cover Python in more detail through development of a set of techniques for Deep learning applications
Deployment milestone
In this section, we discuss the deployment of Deep learning applications through Flask, Docker, Kubernetes and other real-world techniques

I have had the opportunity to partake in the Data Science for the IoT course taught by Ajit Jaokar. He have crafted a collection of instructional videos, code samples, projects and social interaction with him and other students of this deep knowledge.

Ajit gives an awesome introduction and description of all the tools of the trade for a data scientist getting into the IoT. Even when I really come from a software engineering background, I have found the course totally accessible and useful. The support given by Ajit to make my IoT product a data science driven reality has been invaluable. Providing direction on how to achieve my data analysis goals and even helping me to publish the results of my investigation.

The knowledge demonstrated on this course in a mathematical and computer science level has been truly exciting and encouraging. This course was the key for me to connect the little data to the big data.

Jamie Weisbrod – San Diego –

Currently there is a plethora of online courses and degrees available in data science/big data. What attracted me to joining the futuretext class “Data Science for ioT” is Ajit Jaokar. My main concern in choosing a course was how to leverage skills that I already possessed as a computer engineer. Ajit took the time to discuss how I could personalize the course for my interests.

I am currently in the midst of the basic coursework but already I have been able to network with students all over the world who are working on interesting projects. Ajit inspires a lot of people at all ages as he is also teaching young people Data science using space exploration.
